Thread: List of gamecontent that does not work at the moment

  1. #41
    Game is forgotting researched empire wide techs like enhanced colonisation or province creation after your load the game. For example - you researched adaptation tech and can colonise worlds with 700 hazard, saving, quit to main menu, load game and you no longer can colonise them.

    Sure about that? Never saw this kind...mhm... but thats actually more like a bug that seems to be a part of the savegame system, in the first place it seems to work if you not load a game? So more a Savegame issue then.

    Will find another game to spend my time with and hope that this one will get fixed in the next few months.

    To be fair, most of these are easy fixes that just relate around numbers being properly noticed and relayed through the system. Others are probably being held back until such a time as things are working. Though I really want to see beam shooting missiles as illogical and ridiculous as that is, because if my Leviathan HAS to have missiles, than they're going to be beam shooting ones.

    We really need a module dedicated to energy needs (like a secondary, tertiary, or supplementary reactor) or a major increase in supply, because so far I'm not seeing any that really do that.

    I'm also fully planning and hoping that switching things to the professor X module will be useful in the end if fully researched due to having a shield or being able to attack with powerful psionics at range.

    Although the implementation proved beyond 20 years ago technology (and the article doesn't indicate if it was only targetting 100s of laser rods at once or the basic lasing mechanism that was the bottleneck), bomb pumped lasers are a very real theoretical concept; which puts them above ~90% of the technology in the game.

    I never said it wasn't possible, I said it was ridiculous, because for all the tech and cost of putting the energy generation and emitter in there, you could just put a kinetic impact device or accelerate the round faster and make it much more precise or much more explosive than that.

    Yesterday I researched province tech, so I could make 4 system and 7 ly province. When I attempted the game given random name exact the same as my starting province, I agreed and game is crashed because the name is not unique. When I loaded autosave, I no longer could make 4 system 7 ly province. So I'm sure about provinces. Colonising issue happened for me but not in this patch, can't check right now.

    You know that XenoTechnology is to be assumed the Reverse-Engeneering Tree? You get only Researches there, thats how i would see it at the moment, if you got Xenotechnology from boarding or salvaging, so you can research it.

    No according to Mecron it is a technology tree that you can start researching the feasibility of after seeing such tech from aliens or other events.

    Quite literally, monkey see, monkey do.

    Now that you've uploaded the quoted list (too bad it had to be italicized though... that kind of makes it harder to read) you can delete the other one and just use that, as it's as complete as I've done so far.

    Yep, allready done. Just let me play 5 minutes with formats and update ^^

    Okay well...then we can be all await the intressting XenoTechs. Reminds me on the artifacts you can find in a other 4x Spacegame.

    I want the PeaceKeeper beam or the ability to construct drones in action via the Von Neuman!

    Thumbs up Hey, what a fine thread Ferigad :)

    do not have to make echoes in here. I assume based on that I can't scrap my ships come under: salvage, right?

    Moreover, this thread is certainly sticky ready?

    This is Feri's thread, I just spent some time in wordpad typing things out while looking at the pretty ships (or not so pretty) and in between crashing.

    I've got more to add, but I'm watching the new trailer for Hitman Absolution right now.

    ---

    I think probably a lot of the weapons may or may not work (though numbers aren't that hard to program for) the way they intended but I can't test them all. As far as I know the Tractor Beams are SUPPOSED to be continuous else no point exists but they don't seem to continually fire and their turrets don't seem mounted properly for a continuous beam (more capacitors and engines and dedicated mount station needed for direct energy pooling). The graviton beams are supposed to as well, and I really thought the phasers would do more damage-degradation meaning they'd hit the target and then move around as the turret moved them for radial damage (think a laser being slowly moved to burn a hole instead of just pierce through) but that's not the case sadly.

    If we had tractor beams continuous... I could see which turrets don't fire.

    I'll try and sum the other list up into more simple terms and descriptions so that we can have two nicely formatted lists of information. I'll go through and see what does and does not work.

    Scrap Ship...i know i forget somethin :P thx, added to the upper list.

    At the moment i would say that the most systems are implemented
    but simply put off. And i think the same applys to the bonus systems
    out of research, or planets or any other factor. I would guess that the
    bonuses dont work at all, or at least over 80% of them dont work.

    Oh and i have also still to test Grapplers and Boarding pods. ^^

    Well that was a short test, grabbling hooks cant be fitted and the
    boarding mission module misses boardingpods i guess... O.o

    There's nothing fundamentally complex about a bomb pumped laser on a missile. You've got the bomb and the missle already; all you're doing is packing a few lasing rods around it. And since the effects of a bomb fall off as 1/r^2 (and are much smaller in space to begin with since there's no air to transmit a shockwave) by converting even a few percent of the energy into a beam at any range beyond a few dozen meters you're delivering more power onto the target even if you had to install a much smaller warhead to fit everything else in.

  19. #59
    You're talking about using the explosive energy of the bomb and somehow converting it as power for the beam? Wouldn't the bomb be a better thing to use then?
